Weeping cherry

Zone 60169 | [email protected] added on June 26, 2016 | Answered

Our weeping cherry tree has gone wild. Within the last year or so it seems to have sprouted an additional 5 feet up. Is that normal? It doesn't seem to be developing a nice canopy, rather it's like it's trying to grow as tall as possible. Should we be doing something about it? Thanks! Margaret

A Weeping Cherry Tree can grow 20 to 30 feet in height.
An average growth rate is 13 to 24 inches per year.

There is really no such thing as a dwarf variety of this tree.
